Blind Assessment: Rich-toned, chocolaty. Dark chocolate, narcissus-like flowers, date, cedar, blood orange zest in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with balanced acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. The rich, long finish centers on dark chocolate bordering on fudge and exceptionally sweet florals.
Notes: Despite grower discontent and urban encroachment on prime coffee lands, Kenya continues to produce some of the world’s most elegant and distinctive coffees. Imported for the Taiwan market by Pebble Coffee. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A chocolaty and floral-toned Kenya cup with ballast from zesty citrus and rich aromatic wood.
